Snow Birds

Some who live here have started already

to migrate south, often in breeding pairs.

Snow birds, though they fly from snow.

Mostly white, many older, letting others

fly, feed and care for them.




Nesting Season

Birds bumping into the screens and windows.

Did they feel the equinox bump us

into nesting season? The robins came early

and found snow covering the frozen worms.

I want to leave the nest now.
